Lunch Delivery Service : Karashidane Bento

We offer ‘Karashidane Bento,’ a meal delivery program commissioned by the city of Kyoto. The program serves elderly individuals over the age of 60 living alone in the Yamashina, Daigo, and Ishida areas. From Monday to Friday, we directly deliver balanced, nutritious lunches to their homes and also conduct welfare checks. Our staff strives to bring a smile, deliciousness, and peace of mind with every meal they deliver. Upon request, we can adjust the meal to your liking, such as turning the rice into porridge, making it softer, finely chopping side dishes, or adding a thickening agent to make it easier to consume. (Please note: we do not offer pureed meals). Details regarding the conditions for use are listed below. If you have any questions or are wondering whether you’re eligible for the service, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
